I just noticed that today marks the one year anniversary of my starting this book blog! On August 2, 2016, I mentioned that my book was nearly 400 pages long, which means that in the last twelve months it has grown by 200 pages. I've even lost track of how many movies I've analysed--over 200 now. This year has flown by and in spite of getting early starts and working after the sun goes down I never feel like I get enough time to tackle this important subject matter. Back in August 2016 I wrote that the main questions my book addresses are the following:
How are women and girls currently portrayed in the media? How has this portrayal evolved over the years? What are the effects and consequences of these portrayals? How do women fare in today's society, and what part does the media play in women's life conditions?
Now that I reread these questions I'm not surprised I haven't run out of things to say yet. I suspect I never will, but I am aiming to have this book ready by the end of 2017. It would be great to be able to wrap it up and put it under the tree...
